Beautifully illustrated on glossy paper, the book also includes a section on Pluto and comet 67P/Churumov-Gerasimenko.

This is exactly what a coffee-table photo-book should be. Images and accompanying text are on the same page so you can look at the image and read about what you're seeing. Other books (like Mars: The Pristine Beauty of the Red Planet) have a photo section then a text section so you end up flipping pages back and forth of large and heavy book. This is quite detrimental to appreciating the book.

Does it include the many high-quality images of various asteroids imaged by NASA missions, including Vesta? And what about dwarf-planet Ceres?
